Veranda and Clear Cards
I like the new clear cards from CTMH because the cards are so unique. Sometimes it feels as if everything I make is just a remake of some earlier card. Notice the flowers stamped with Stazon (timber brown) on the corners of the cards?
The card below was cloned about a dozen times. One of the joys of aging (and having aging friends) is the increased need for "sympathy", "get well", and "thinking of you" cards. Cards of this nature have unique requirements. Not only must they convey a hopefulness that happier times are around the corner as well as a thoughtful message that speaks of our genuine concern for them, but they must do so in an understated manner so as not to communicate that their distress is yet another opportunity to showcase our paper crafting skills. Hence, simple and thoughtful are in order.
The card below uses the "Bulls eye" from Close To My Heart's Wishes card making program. Sometimes at the monthly crops someone will want me to help them design a card. A busy crop isn't the best environment to spark my creativity (I need to be alone to create). So, my daughter suggested I just put out samples using the book. Then, it will be easy to direct people to the book for directions.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
